Hello,This is a paper print of an original by Juliet McLeod, a British artist known for equestrian themed paintings. Her work was always done on rigid canvas and canvas is never covered with glass, so this is how it can be determined to be a print. This print also has fading and some paper fold damage. This piece has a value of $30.00.

This would be an original oil on linen or board, then, if you are that sure of it being an original. She was most prolific from 1950-1975 and her originals with this theme and size have a value of $600.00-$800.00.(It would not be a watercolor as this is not how the medium looks as a finished product and she did not use watercolor.)

The best thing to do in your case is to contact an antiques auction that also has an online presence (invaluable.com and/or liveauctioneers.com). You can go on either of these websites and do searches by zip code, region so that you could find one nearest to you (pick the largest city near you for best prices at auction) . If you consign, they will take it away for you and handle everything. This will cost a 10-20% commission off of the check that they would send you 14 to 45 days after the auction.Forgot to add, the name of this piece is Grey Horse and Two Greyhounds. There were black and white prints as well as color prints made of this painting. I still doubt that you have the original, but I will trust that you are sure about it.
